A half of the Top Ten is SEC.
Imagine that, the Gators are in the Top Ten but only the fifth best team in the SEC, think about that.
You guys have looked good so far this year. We almost pulled it off against LSU which tells everyone just how tough it is to win in the SEC especially on the road at night. Some huge games looming amongst these 5 SEC teams:
UGA @ USCe 10/6
LSU @ UF 10/6
USCe @ LSU 10/13
USCe @ UF 10/20
UGA v UF 10/27
Alabama @ LSU 11/3
Auburn played with a lot of heart Saturday night. Hopefully our coaches are analyzing the game to see what Auburn did.
SEC ... feh. A&M dang near put it to Florida IN FLORIDA! Bama and LSU may be powerhouses, but Florida will fall.
The UF- TAMU game was in College Station not in Gainesville. I should know as I watched it on tv.
And your team is...
ND moved way up, based upon wins over Michigan and MSU..problem is, both those teams were way overrated..the Big 10 is really, really weak this season..ND will implode
Florida will not get past Florida State.
Take it to the bank.
The Gator/Semiole season finale could have really big implications.....
It could. Even if we have multiple losses, I’d love to play the spoiler.
K-stater here - it wasn’t pretty, but they were very opportunistic and came back strong after a questionable call let OU take the lead in the second half. Strong road win. WV in 3 weeks.
Correct you are! My mistake. I do remember now that it was in College Station. Dang tough place to play.
But Florida will still fall ... mark my words.
... struggling for the past few years. ;-)
Now for the Gators....it could be a special season..Gators have an off week..good for us..get ready for LSU. LSU didn't look very good this week..maybe they're not a good as they think..and it's a home game for us.
So say we beat LSU..and it'll be interesting to see what the point spread is...then the two big games left are Georgia and SC. Spurrier is first and we're at home, and we'll get the Gamecocks after they've played Georgia and LSU....lots of interesting scenarios there..but anytime Steve comes back to the Swamp..well..
After SC is Georgia. Anytime Gators/Dawgs play..well..you can ususally toss out the conventional wisdom. Stuff always happens, and I've never been a big Mark Richt fan..give him a chance, and he'll usually find a way to mess it up..
So, You could see a #3 FSU playing a #4or5 ranked Gators last game...and then the Gators get Bama in the SEC championship..
Uhhh, the game was in College Station. And A&M is a lot better than people think.
We’re headed in the right direction, but realistically a year or two away from challenging for SEC Supremacy again.
We played pretty sloppy against UK, although we won 38-0, play like that against LSU and we’ll get hammered. But then LSU didn’t look all that great against Auburn.
I think we could maybe win 2 of 3 against LSU/USC/UGA, but I don’t see us beating fsu this year. So a 10-2 record and a possible SEC East title (and subsequent hammering by Bama), but I’ll take that gladly.
Yes ... another FReeper pointed that out. My mistake.
A&M is hot/cold. Never know what team will show up to play. If they could get that fixed, they’ll do well in the SEC. But until then, they’re a middle of the road team.
Manziel is going to be a good one. He’s been pretty impressive for a freshman. A&M is going to be a force in the SEC fairly quickly, they’re recruiting has definitely benefited from being in the SEC.
Yes, I like Manziel. Very impressive kid. Very cool under pressure and a good eye for reading defenses. Could be the best A&M has had in a while.
This year’s Oklahoma team is the worst since the John Blake era. They shouldn’t be ranked.
I hate to say it, but FSU’s path now is pretty clear to playing Bama for the National Championship. The rest of the ACC is a joke. Oregon/USC/Stanford will beat each other up most likely, leaving a Pac 12 team out. The Big 12 is pretty weak, the Big Ten, forget it. Maybe Notre Dame if they run the table could get in, but I don’t see that happening.
I think with West Virgina and TCU, the Big XII is much stronger than the ACC. If Geno Smith and WV can run the gauntlet in the Big XII, they deserve a spot in the title game.
Between West Virginia, Texas and Kansas State. I think it’s another Pac 12 situation where they beat each other up.
Okay, feel offended if you want but when you just write USC people around the country get confused. I write USCw when referring to the other school.
Love Spurrier and he has built USC (happy?) into a consistent contender in the East. Objectively though you have a long way to go to compete against Alabama and LSU. The game against UGA on 10/6 is HUGE and will likely decide the East.
Every team has its ups and downs.
If we finish with a 2 or 3 loss season, I’d say it was very successful.
More important is the development of Driskel, he’s made great strides, now comes his big test against LSU.
True. Hopefully he does a good job. I think it would be a huge confidence builder.
Gainesville is going to be crazy that weekend.
Alabama a true powerhouse? I really think there are some teams out there that could destroy them: The Ravens, The Packers...
